Olathe Tea Party

dsc00631

The Nice Deb after action report: Not as big as we would have hoped – 100- 150 people in all,  disappointing considering last week we had over 200 on the Plaza DURING a snowstorm. Participants agreed, a better effort needs to be made to get the word out, like calling local radio talk shows to broadcast time and place. Also the weather may have played a part – VERY windy with a threat of rain.

Like last week it was a fun, enthusiastic group of hardcore conservatives. Once again we got many honks of approval, including one guy who put his hand on his horn and didn’t let go…poor guy must have lost his shirt in the stock market. There was one suv full of moonbats that went around the block a few times with a sign that said, “Obama Rocks!”….that was their entire message: “Obama Rocks!” Maybe next time they could come up with a pithy message to explain why that is.

We had no trouble expressing our opposition:

UPDATE:

Some of the Tea Party goers were organizing Glen Beck “We Surround Them” viewing parties. See here for a party near you.

UPDATE II:

Michelle Malkin has a good round-up of Saturday’s tea parties.

UPDATE III:

Yowza. Gateway Pundit is reporting that a tax revolt in Fullerton, CA drew 15,000 people. You know what helped?  Local talk radio promoted the event, local talkers John and Ken hosted.

UPDATE IV:

American Power reports that the Fullerton protest drew more like 9000. Either way…impressive numbers. Also, some words on the new Conservative grassroots organizing.

UPDATE V:
